The threat of BSV delisting on Binance, a $ 5,000 head bounty for a critic, and Craig Wright’s other adventures

The CEO of the Binance exchange Changpeng Zhao decided to use the leverage he had to put in the place of the notorious figure of the crypto space, with enviable persistence trying to impersonate the creator of bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto.

Craig Wright is not Satoshi. If this shit continues, we will delist, “Zhao wrote..

Recently, the self-styled Nakamoto took an attempt to take the fight against disliked community members to a new level and promised to sue the creator of the Lightning Torch initiative, nicknamed Hodlonaut, for a series of defamatory tweets. For a long time, Wright threatened his ill-wishers with a court of law, who did not hesitate to call him a “swindler” and “Feiktoshi”.

Law firm SCA ONTIER LLP., Representing Wright’s interests, prepared a series of official letters in which they demanded that Hodlonaut recant his words and apologize, otherwise promising to bring him on charges of defamation, writes Bitcoin Magazine.

“We strongly recommend that you heed the legal advice contained in this letter, drawn up in accordance with the protocol of preventive actions for cases of dissemination of defamatory information,” reads the introduction..

In the letter, the firm insists that Wright is “the man hiding under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto,” and demands that Hodlonaut disclose his full name, email address, and mailing address. If the recipient does not do so voluntarily, “Wright will take steps to obtain information of interest to him by other means, including, if necessary, going to court.”.

The remainder of the letter SCA ONTIER LLP. lists the insults she claims to have unreasonably attacked Wright, such as “a very sad and pitiful con man who is obviously not doing well in his head,” and draws attention to the popular #CraigWrightIsAFraud tag: “Using this tag, you motivate your subscribers to participate in this discussion, which is an extremely rude method of discrediting our client “.

The company also has a dissenting opinion about why Hodlonaut is “consistently and systematically” trying to defame Wright. According to her, Hodlonaut is an ardent supporter of Bitcoin Cash and, because of this, has a dislike for the Bitcoin SV camp, one of the leaders of which is Wright himself. As noted by Bitcoin Magazine, this statement is far from the reality, since Hodlonaut supports Bitcoin and criticizes not only BSV, but Bitcoin Cash for violating the integrity of the ecosystem..

In conclusion SCA ONTIER LLP. lists the requirements. First, Hodlonaut must delete all tweets indicated by the firm (note – on the recommendation of his lawyer, he completely deleted his Twitter account). Second, he must not spread defamation against Wright again in the future. Third, Hodlonaut must apologize on Twitter and appear in court to personally apologize to Wright and “find his statements to be false.” The letter also provides a phrase that Hodlonaut should say to avoid further problems: “I was wrong when I claimed that Craig Wright was tricking himself into being Satoshi Nakamoto. I admit that he is Satoshi. I apologize to Dr. Wright. This will not happen again “.

While the firm promises to use legal tools to get information about Hodlonaut and bring him to justice in the future, there is obviously more to the range of methods Wright is willing to use to save his honor..

According to CoinGeek, owned by Wright’s friend Calvin Ayre, who also believed in the truth of the Bitcoin SV path, “Wright will pay $ 5,000 to BSV for information about Hodlonaut’s true identity.” To identify the offender, it is proposed to pay attention to the tattoos that Hodlonaut showed in photos on Twitter, without revealing his face.

“In addition, Hodlonaut announced that he is going to attend the Baltic Honeybadger 2019 conference in Riga on September 14-15. If anyone wants to receive an award, watch out for visitors who are unnaturally trying to pull back their sleeves, ”recommends CoinGeek.

Zhao turned out to be one of many representatives of the cryptocurrency space, who reacted to the overstepping the boundaries of reason “witch hunt.” Over the past few days, caring community members have changed their Twitter nicknames to “Hodlonaut” and, in other ways, have tried to express support for the targeted critic.

If Wright’s goal was to induce the Streisand Effect, he has to admit that he succeeded. Other prerequisites for the actions of the unrecognized Satoshi raise doubts, as well as the fact that his representatives themselves share the alternative version of bitcoin creation promoted by them: “Wright did not fraudulently disseminate information that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. He is Satoshi Nakamoto. He wrote a talk titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” in October 2008, donated the first bitcoin to Gal Finney in January 2009, and played a key role in Bitcoin’s development. “.
